Archbishop of Boston Sean O'Malley, left, greets Gary Bergeron, an
alleged victim of priest sex abuse, after Mass at the Church of
Saint Michael in Lowell, Mass., where the late Rev. Joseph E.
Birmingham allegedly molested boys. O'Malley, installed as
archbishop July 30, has wasted no time in making clear his desire
to settle hundreds of clergy abuse claims, according to attorneys
in the talks.
